Issaquah >Restaurants > Krispy Kreme
Is there anything better? Nope.. Ok, seriously, how could a Krispy Kreme experience go bad. Unless you somehow manage to miss your mouth or accidentally hurl it across the room because of all the excitement.
Sink your teeth into this franchise's signature glazed doughnut, and don't be afraid to indulge in its many varieties of deep-fried perfection..
In 1937, Vernon Rudolph brought a secret recipe from a French chef to North Carolina, creating the infamous irresistible treat and starting a glazed doughnut revolution. These scrumptious doughy delights are brushed with a sugar coating, and have been know to cause even the most dedicated hard-bodies to temporarily abandon their diet. Evolving past the original glaze recipe, today customers can now choose from a variety of lip smacking treats, from apple fritter to New York cheesecake doughnuts. The international company still holds to its roots, providing welcoming and helpful service while perfecting its craft at making melt-in-your-mouth masterpieces.
Mmmm...Donuts..... Krispy Kreme donuts are competitive in taste, but not in price. To save face they cannot lower their prices, now that the rave over their donuts has subsided in this region--but hopefully they won't raise them too. This chain is still unique in that they sell nostalgic toys to commemorate an era and the esthetics of their donut shop surpasses their competition. Known for their glazed donuts, these are still mouth-watering and still worth the addition to your dozen. One thing they could definitely improve on, is their lack of friendliness at the Drive Thru window. I get a more cheery reception at a McD's drive thru.
Great for a late night snack. If you ever feel the need for a late night snack head over to Krispy Kreme and get a dozen of the original glazed donuts. Then pick up a gallon of milk to help wash them down. My daughter loves to watch them making the donuts, great place to take the kids.
(I) Don't forget the hype. Remember the hype surrounding Krispy Kreme's entry into the Seattle area? This Issaquah doughnut shop was fast the most popular place in town. There were lines out of the drive-thru such that police were there and the place was coned off to direct traffic and inside there were lines wrapping all over the place. Now, admittedly, standing in the shop watching the doughnuts get made and iced is really interesting, but apparently this shop was not quite worth the hype after all. The doughnuts are pretty good. I don't think they're really outstanding. A warm original glazed doughnut is pretty good and nearly melts in your mouth, but meh... They're ok. The lines are all gone and there's plenty of other Krispy Kremes in the Seattle area so eat up if you like doughnuts, or better yet, visit Top P0t.
Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. Leave the doughnuts alone! Be angry at the people who tag our streets and rip off our community. They're just donuts! I'm sure everyone has their favorite. You don't go to K.K. for Maple Bars or Apple Friter's! You go for the experience of watching the dounts being made. The Flipper, Waterfall of Glaze and the smell of Fresh, Hot, Sugarery Delights. I bring my day care kids there for an extra special treat. They love it! Ask ahead of time and they will give you a one on one tour with your group. How cool! Where else can you go and do that? So don't hate....enjoy! We go to the Krispy Kreme in Industry, Calif. They have always been nice and it is always clean.
pricey, but very good....go when you can get hot donuts. the coffee still doesn't do it for me since i became a seattle coffee snob...however...the donuts always deliver. be sure to time your trips with the 'hot donuts now' sign....you will be in heaven!
What's so Krispy about Kreme?. Partially hydrogenated oils stay in your body for six weeks. We have known this as a society for over 20 years now. Yet KK still uses them in their doughnuts. That should tell you how they feel about their customers-they only care about the profits. Quality is NOT important at this establishment.
Krispy Kreme rocks. they have the best glazed donuts I have ever eaten. hands down the best. these dounts are so good it's hard to describe in words. trust me on this one. Krispy Kreme is no longer a secret so this info isn't really groundbreaking. but do yourself a favor and try their donuts. I also enjoy their Iced Coffee
The most over-hyped eatery in the West. Perhaps the most overrated place in town. I really can't understand how absolutely nuts people in the West go over Krispy Kreme. Their donuts are mediocre but the hype is downright nauseating! All I can say is that Krispy Kreme seems to have had one of the most successful marketting campaigns in recent history -- manufacturing a sensation from mediocre donuts. I'd rather go to my local donut shop down on Rainier, or Top Pot on Capitol Hill or the crazy little donut stand in Pike Market.
